Gibson Custom Shop 335 DOT Re-Issue Left Handed Sixties Cherry 2021 – Excellent condition – 9.75/10.
This particular guitar is an absolute gem, it’s been played but really well looked after. Grab it while you can as these left handed versions are sold out in the UK at the moment! – If your looking for a 335 that stands out in the new era of Gibson, this is the one. Its a fantastic player and sounds gorgeous. The guitar is in excellent condition with no dings, damage, dents or knocks. It is however a used guitar so do expect some very very minor signs of use.
Heres what Gibson say:
The ES-335 model is one of the most recognisable in Gibson’s iconic instrument range and considered by many to be the quintessential semi-hollow guitar. Typically, the ES-335 appeals to traditional players, but with its modern appointments we think the USA ES-335 will be seen in the hands of many current musicians too.
The ES-335 is regarded for its elegant semi-hollow body, which allows you to achieve bright and open sounds with plenty of natural acoustic-like volume. Formed from a 3-ply maple/poplar combination, these tonewoods give this guitar plenty of vibrancy and top-end definition.
To add some warmth, the ES-335’s body is paired with a quarter sawn mahogany neck; topped with a rosewood fingerboard for a silky feel under the fingers. The neck has a comfortable rounded “C” profile, feeling substantial in the hands without being too chunky or cumbersome. The ES-335 Figured’s rolled binding also offers a smoother feel, with a sleek transition between the side of the neck and the fretboard.
Electronics & Hardware
A double-dose of medium-output T-Type humbucking pickups give this instrument a rounded, warm tone. More responsive to your playing dynamics, these pickups lend themselves to expressive players. Although semi-hollow guitars are more synonymous with clean jazz players, with distortion these humbuckers can sound fairly raunchy and bold; meaning they’re not just one trick ponies by any means.
The Gibson USA ES-335 Figured comes installed with an ABR-1 Tune-O-Matic bridge, providing a stable and solid feel under the picking hand. With its simple and accessible design making it easy to adjust your action and intonation, you can easily manipulate your setup on-the-fly. Fitted with Titanium saddles, these offer better sustain, intonation and longevity.
